"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series

November 12, 1910

St. Louis beat us 9 to 0, but we’re proud of our team.  They called the team “Little Kentucky Colonels” and complimented them highly.  

Fun? Well, rather. I had John’s suit and it fit fine.  Lydia got me a hat.  “Peck” said I looked like “Puf”! Well, that’s alright.  I never had such a good time in my life.  Addie was an awfully good-looking boy.  Marion Johnson looked like Newt Duff.  Cornelia server was a grand looking fellow.  Everybody had a splendiferous time.  And O! You fixtures in the back yard Sunday morning! Did Mrs. Wallis get angry?  Did the Kappa Sig. boys peek out the windows?  Did we take some cute pictures? Well, rather!

 “We’ve all got it in us!”

*Inserted is a small booklet with a pencil attached.  The front has an illustration of three black cats and three Jack o’ Lanterns and reads, “Co-Ed Nov. 12, ‘10”.  The inside of the booklet has the handwritten names of 22 girls.
